SKU: N/A Category:


Our Crescent Zafu meditation cushion cradles you, and gives your legs support on their way down to your zabuton. We especially like our tapered design because the zafu follows your leg-line right down to the floor. Still Sitting offers Crescent Zafus stuffed with kapok or buckwheat, a variety of colors, and a choice between Standard (non-removable cover) or Deluxe (removable cover).

Our crescent buckwheat zafu is packed a little loosely so it will mold to your form.

We stuff our kapok zafu tight to make it soft yet firm to sit on. These zafus have a zippered closure to allow you to adjust the buckwheat or kapok fill.

Our Deluxe Crescent Zafu has an inner lining made of 100% cotton muslin. Each Deluxe Crescent Zafu cover is machine washable with the exception of the Patterned Zafu which we recommend hand-washing or dry cleaning.

If you’d like, you may add an extra Removable Cover of the same or a different color.

For more information on the difference between kapok and buckwheat and choosing the right zafu for you, see our blog.

  1. I am just beginning a yoga/meditation habit at 61. When I sat on the crescent zafu for the first time, I immediately felt relief. I hadn’t realized how out of alignment my spine/pelvis is. Wish I could sleep sitting up on this cushion…. Well made and well crafted! Thank you Still Sitting!

  2. A repeat customer! Love my original zafu so much and got tired of lugging it back and forth between places I stay so I purchased a second one. Previously, I meditated using a bench but the buckwheat crescent zafu provides such nice leg support and I can now sit for a prolonged time in modified lotus. Not bad for a 73-year-old. Thank you, Still Sitting! I’m still sitting….

  3. I wish it had a removable zipper cover.

    • Hi Jill – Thanks for your feedback. We do offer a version of this cushion with a zippered removable cover, our Deluxe Crescent Zafu, for an additional $19. In addition, it’ll be tight, but you can fit a crescent cover over your existing Standard Crescent, and you can buy that separately here: All our best.

  4. I am pleased. This Crescent Zafu is very well made. It is very tightly packed and a bit higher than I was anticipating but I imagine I will get used to it.

  5. I’ve only had the crescent zafu for a few weeks, but it feels like a game changer for me. I was sitting on a higher gomden before and the zafu is a much better height for me. Plus the crescent shape allows room for my feet to sit in the right position
